Eliza Armstrong Cox Awards
Greetings, This is a reminder that the deadline for the Eliza Armstrong Cox nominations is July 15. Celebration of Service at IAYM is scheduled for Saturday, July 29, at 10:30 am, in the Musco Building on the Wm Penn Campus in Oskaloosa.
In the late 1800’s while living in Western Yearly Meeting, Eliza (Clark) Armstrong Cox caught a clear vision of the part Quaker women should contribute to the Master’s great plan of world evangelization. Through her untiring efforts she initiated the movement which developed into the Women’s Missionary Union of Friends in America which is known today as the United Society of Friends Women International (USFWI). The Eliza Armstrong Cox Fellowship Award was established many years ago as a way to recognize and honor the special efforts of selected women in the local USFW societies.
If you wish to honor a woman in your society who has given outstanding service to USFW, please contact Jacque Wilbur for information. Thank you.
